Tiddly Inks Challenge - Summer Fun with Water, Sand and Toys

Thought I would get a few cute digital images from Tiddly Inks.  Isn't she cute?  Tiddly Inks is also having a challenge - use a stamp that deals with summer fun.  My inspiration actually came from a ribbon I had.  Loved the blues in it and decided to match my paper and colored pencils to that flowered ribbon.  I only used one strip of it in the end which is hidden a bit but I think it's a good little pop of color.  I embossed my navy paper with Cuttlebug Swirls and then took a white marker and colored four of the waves.  I then took my exacto knife and cut along the waves so I could tuck my Tim Holtz Shabby paper corner behind the waves.  Once I colored my little stamp with my prizma colored pencils I used a Zig pen and added a bit of fine glitter to the sand.  I found the sentiment in a set of stickers I have but decided to computer generate the sentiment in a navy to match the papers.  Finally, I pieced it together and added a few pearls in mother of pearl and blue.  I hope you are having a sunny, sandy summer!
